In Part 2 of Platinum Tech we compare the RB30 and 2JZ engine blocks to see which one is better, and more importantly why. Platinum Racing Products have an array of tests they can perform on a block.

      Because it would have cost millions in R&D and probably perform worse than the B58. The only bad decision with the new supra is that you can only get it with a manual transmission.

      Thank you, excellent comments. The bore pitch of the JZ is 92mm, of the RB 96.5mm. I've calculated the actual journal overlap (the enclosed area of the intersecting lens) of the 2JZ (stroke 86mm, rod 52mm, main 62mm) at 5.53 square inches, and that of the RB30 (stroke 85mm, rod 50mm, main 55mm) at 3.25 square inches, a huge difference. Coupled with the greater overall length, the 2JZ crank is much stiffer.

      Maybe all of Australia thinks your accent is irritating? Ever thought of that?. Speaking of thoughts. What the hell made you feel the need to post this comment? If you don't like it, don't watch it. The narrator isn't going to change his accent for you, or for anybody for that matter. Learn to not be a hater

      Supra Mk.4 = Over engineered Engine
      Skyline R34 = Over engineered Car

      So if you swap a 2JZ into a R34 it becomes the most perfect car ever!

      I love both cars, I prefer the Supra, but you gotta respect the AWD and the All-Wheel-Steering from the R34, both legendary cars!

      Your data is not wrong just incomplete. The data you gave does give the dotile strength nor impact strength. Hardness prevents warping not cracking. You should ask what is the temper metal and method of bore. The engines shape geometry has more to do with structural strength then simple length. Weight displacements is the only way you can measure denisty. That will also tell you you metal blend quality.

      Love this comparison.. wonder where my S54 block stands in comparison lol it looks more like the 2JZ aesthetically but I know for a fact that the S54 can't handle in excess of 1000hp without sleeves & other mods; mad respect to Toyota's engineering with the 2JZ!!

      This is the reason why toyota will always be my first choice in lines of vehicles and engines because trust me with periodic maintenance these vehicles and engines will literally run forever
